Growing up I loved the shows on this list, but even as a wee one I knew they weren't what they claimed. All of these shows focused on gay couples who (for some reason) weren't allowed to be gay on TV, so ridiculous back stories and ludicrous plot twists were introduced to explain same-sex couples raising children, living together, or being psychiatrists.

In this show, a single mother dies leaving her daughter parentless. She never knew who the real father of her child was (SLUT), so instead of a running a simple DNA test, the two men move in together and raise the child together.

Um, yeah, this show is about two gay men raising their daughter, but I guess no one was ok with that in the 80s so they cast seriously butch actors like Paul Reiser and came up with a preposterous back story.

PS - Acid-wash jeans + Cosby sweaters = amazing
